I am about to purchase a server for my company. Our company requires 20 servers to run each application in each. My idea is rather than buying 20 servers it will be better to buy 2 highend servers in which 1st server will be divided into 20 VPS parts and the 2nd is dedicated backend server. Is this a good practice or should I purchase 20 servers to run 20 applications in each?

Which will be better for me? By running VPS will other VPS resources will get low performance?

As usual, "it depends".

in my experience, usually disk io rate is the first bottleneck on the host, but this may not be the case for you, it all depends on the load profile of your application.
